Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?
Hello Traxx fam! Im David AKA Vitpoint from Chile. Born in 1997, I started producing at the age of 15 (today Im 20 years old) impulsed & influenced by different type of music/artists that I listened on 2011-2012.
Thanks to the technology and internet I learned how to produce my own tracks because I started to getting bored of just listening, and well... through the years I found that I like a lot of styles, that's why I can't define one genre on my artist name but mainly I think my tracks are closer to some smooth future bass style combined with some electro sounds.
I really love people who like my space and all the things that I do! (even if I take months to upload something) Just because I produce music for the love of this beautiful kind of expression, no more reasons! So I would be very glad if you like my art ? P.S= I love anime and games.
How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?
Uhm... my first influences comes from different kind of music and artists that I listened before, beetween 2010-2012. Such as Electro/House, Drum & Bass, Trance, Dubstep/Brostep, Complextro and Moombahton. Also I want to mention music from 80's and 90's they gave me really good ideas of what I wanted to do!
My taste really changed over the time but that doesn't mean that I don't like music from my earlier years of producing. I just found different music all over the internet that caught my attention... like Trap, Future Bass, Experimental Music, J-POP. I usually listen to game's and movie's soundtracks because they give me a different perspective of what music is.
I can describe my taste as a bowl of different fruits, I love everything because every sound has a different flavor & something to say to the people.
What´s new right now?
Actually... I'm working on 2 new songs (Future Bass & Progressive Psy-Trance), and 1 is finished! This last one I will probably release it at the beginning of december ? WAIT FOR IT.
If you, Traxx Fam, want to know more about my music and my life, follow me on my social media!
Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?
Im an ULTRA super fan of Porter Robinson, Madeon & Feed Me... I became a super fan of this three because... their music is other level really creative things and powerful songs that I can't hold a lot in my heart because they are really great tho! And yes, a lot of times I question myself with "Why am I a super fan of this guys?"
What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?
My biggest mistake was trying to make music through long long hours without any results just because I was tired or my mind got f*cked up with millions of melodies and sounds.
What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?
Being pro-active and learn about music theory... Yes and no, sometimes I'm something like "uuuuuh F*CK THIS I CAN'T DO IT" or "IM SUCH A D*CK HEAD I DON'T KNOW HOW TO WRITE MUSIC" and sometimes I feel really good with me and I think I can do everything!
How do you personally discover new music?
Listening on soundcloud labels or listening at Spotify playlist of what Im looking for (genre)
What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?
If you know nothing about songwriting or music theory, feel free to use the piano scales in some DAWs just like FL studio. No ones will say that you are worst than other producer that already knows songwriting or theory ? THE FINAL RESULT IS WHAT REALLY MATTERS!
Someday you will notice that you are learning by doing that!
What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?
Think about food, what makes food feels really good at the end of your tongue? The salt? The sugar? SPICES? Nop, it's the time you take to prepare that food and how you prepare it, THAT is what make the food feels really good. The thing is take your time to find the correct answer to the question on your song or simply do some slow outro taking away sounds every compass through the seconds until no sound is left!
We meet again in one year. What has changed?
Make more music and have my first big release!
